Real Estate Practice Group
Residential Real Estate
At Black and Davison, the attorneys of our Real Estate Practice Group are dedicated to assisting residential home buyers and sellers in the sale or purchase of real estate located throughout central Pennsylvania. We have assisted both buyers and sellers in countless real estate transactions for over 35 years. From the first time homebuyer or seller to the sophisticated speculator in real estate, our attorneys promise competent, dedicated, and thorough representation from offer to settlement with attention to every detail of the transaction.
When you are purchasing a home or obtaining a loan to purchase a home you have the absolute right to select who you want to do your settlement and issue title insurance coverage on the property. We are not an abstract company that someone else may have selected for you where your paperwork and settlement may be overseen by persons who are not licensed attorneys. By selecting Black and Davison you can be confident that at no additional cost to you, you will have the benefit of having an experienced attorney backing you and looking out for your best interests at every stage of the real estate transaction.
It is vitally important for prospective homebuyers to thoroughly understand the process of purchasing a home and the potential risks associated with the property’s title. Most people don’t realize that the current owners of their prospective home – and their family and heirs – have extremely strong rights associated with the property. In addition, third parties may have liens against the title for anything from unpaid child support to outstanding parking tickets. In fact, it takes very little effort to place a lien on a property, but it can take a great deal of time and money to have it removed.
Prospective buyers should be certain they know what issues affect the title of the property they plan to buy and recognize that even new construction properties can be subject to these same kinds of problems.
We will perform a title search for the property you are buying and resolve any issues that have been discovered by the title work. As agent for a national title insurance company we can issue a title insurance policy on the property you are buying or give you an attorney’s certificate of title. The title policy and attorneys certificate of title protect a property owner against financial losses associated with claims against the title that were not discovered during the title search.
